$ 6000 sounds way overpriced to me too.

I have a 99 Boxster that I purchased at 100000 miles and I rebuilt the engine because the timing chain jumped over. The clutch was toast, but the flywheel...

The chain guide block at bank 1-3 vs 4-6 moves the opposite directions. Perhaps the 1-3 pads (the chain guide block moves down at 1500 rpm) are exposed to more friction at the changovers. Another...

Yeah, it`s kind of a waste... If I needed an engine I`d try to buy it, I like challenges and risky projects though :) But first I `d inspect it thoroughly with a borescope. Probably it`s largely...

This should be a straightforward soldering job even if some wires are missing. If you add extra pieces they can be soldered into the original harness with no problem if you do it right, or if you get...

Basically they are similar, but the Viper/Avital units indeed seem to better fit this application.

Yeah, that should last for at least as long as the original lasted. There`s another thread about a single row at 235k miles, still running perfect. As for the center bolt, there is very little load...

What did you use? I`m thinking of just buying a generic keyfob and swap the board with the buttons into the original fob, or mate it with the key. Should be doable. Probably the immobilizer can be...

Seeing this keyfob gives a headache to many of us, just wondering isn`t there an easy way to work around it? Just by deactivating the immobilizer and adding a generic remote controlled system hooked...

If you do it with the engine in place it`s probably doable in two weekends. I pulled the engine because it had to be torn down completely, but it`s not necessary. Just much easier on an engine stand....

Mine at 100k wore down to the bottom, broke apart and made the chain somehow jump teeth and subsequently caused valve-to-piston contact. It`s very important to replace these pads in time, they are...

I just checked and the size is the same. The number on the bearing also looks similar: 6204DUA17NSK. If I had known about this bearing when I did the rebuild I would`ve gone with this one, this is...

Excellent information! But shouldn`t it trigger CEL right after I erase the code if it`s toast? CEL comes back usually in a day or two.

Yes, I used 2.7 rings for my 2.5. The seller of course was convinced they won`t fit but I bought them anyway and they did. The stroke is different, the bore is the same.
